Ok, I really purchased this to listen to music on my iphone (3GS OS 3.1.2) and for that these headphones work perfectly well, I have tried the odd call too and that works fine although there is no noise suppression on the microphone so surrounding noise could be an issue.
I also wanted to watch movies through my Media Centre, this had a strange affect; when the Media Centre transmits in mono all is well, however in stereo there is a lag between audio and video (lip-sync issues etc - a common issue with Bluetooth), by fast forwarding and rewinding a bit the problem seems to clear itself each time - no idea why! (a buffering issue I suspect).
Quality of the headphones is great, sturdy and well built, not too big but big enough to be comfortable on the ears, volume controls are easy to locate and although the headband is as wide as the speakers it is very comfortable and provides a reassuring fit. Each side can extend about an inch further on the headband.
Hard to describe sound quality, but I can say that the quality is much better than I expected, no distortion (even at high volume levels), treble and mid range sounds are excellent, the bass could be improved but for the money paid is better than I hoped.
Charge time is quick (although I would have liked to see a USB charge system rather than a dedicated mains lead - strange an earlier reviewer said they didn't like the USB charging - something I certainly do not have on my set).
Pro's... Excellent sound (for the price), good build quality and ease of use.
Con's... Lag in lip-sync for stereo video.
